Samsung 58B550 Bands on white screen

04-18-2010, 08:24 AM
My 58B550 may have an issue. When I put up an all white or bright screen I see what appears to be three distinct bands running across the screen.

If you divided up the screen into thirds from top to bottom, the top and bottom third are equal in brightness, but the middle third is just slightly darker. Not a huge amount, just enough to notice.

Is this normal, or something that is really wrong? I cant see it in regular programs, just scenes that go very bright.

I have the PN58B860 and I can see darker bands on my tv as well. Best buy came and replaced it and the new one has them as well just not as bad as the first. I am thinking they go away over time and after you break the tv in. I ran the scroll feature on the tv and they seemed to disappear a little more. Try using that for a few hours. Otherwise try and replace it and see what they say. May not fix the issue though.

I see mostly when I watch hockey and golf.
